A man was walking down the street
When he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.
The man took out his wallet, extracted
ten dollars and asked, “If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?”
“No, I had to stop drinking years ago,” the homeless man replied.
“Will you spend this on green fees at
a golf course instead of food?” the man asked.
“Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless man. I haven’t played golf in 20 years!”
“Well,” said the man, “I’m not going
to give you money. Instead, I’m going
to take you home for a hot shower
and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife.”
The homeless man was astounded.
“Won’t your wife be furious with you
for doing that?”The man replied,
“That’s okay. It’s important for her
to see what a man looks like after he
has given up drinking and golf.”
